    stdafx.h

    hi all
    i'm using the tutorials on windows programming, and when i compile the code i seem to get an error that reads:

    Code:
     stdafx.h: No such file or directory.
    do i have to create this header file or something, because it's really getting on my nerves!

    Just delete the line that includes stdafx.h.
    Those tutorials are crap (and made with VC++), but if you can't find any better ones, then...

    stdafx is a header that is created when you start a new Windows application (atleast in MSVC). It depends on which compiler you are using. You don't really need this header, so just take the line off that says
    Code:
    #include "stdafx.h"
    This is my stdafx.h that is created in MSVC 2005:
    Code:
    // stdafx.h : include file for standard system include files,
    // or project specific include files that are used frequently, but
    // are changed infrequently
    //
    
    #pragma once
    
    // Modify the following defines if you have to target a platform prior to the ones specified below.
    // Refer to MSDN for the latest info on corresponding values for different platforms.
    #ifndef WINVER				// Allow use of features specific to Windows XP or later.
    #define WINVER 0x0501		// Change this to the appropriate value to target other versions of Windows.
    #endif
    
    #ifndef _WIN32_WINNT		// Allow use of features specific to Windows XP or later.                   
    #define _WIN32_WINNT 0x0501	// Change this to the appropriate value to target other versions of Windows.
    #endif						
    
    #ifndef _WIN32_WINDOWS		// Allow use of features specific to Windows 98 or later.
    #define _WIN32_WINDOWS 0x0410 // Change this to the appropriate value to target Windows Me or later.
    #endif
    
    #ifndef _WIN32_IE			// Allow use of features specific to IE 6.0 or later.
    #define _WIN32_IE 0x0600	// Change this to the appropriate value to target other versions of IE.
    #endif
    
    #define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN		// Exclude rarely-used stuff from Windows headers
    // Windows Header Files:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    // C RunTime Header Files
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <malloc.h>
    #include <memory.h>
    #include <tchar.h>
    
    
    // TODO: reference additional headers your program requires here
    Also, make a .cpp that includes this header.

    Sometimes your compiler will be set so that it's necessary to have a 'precompiled header directive' included (stdafx), and if you don't #include it, you'll get an error like this

    > fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header directive

    At least with MSVC 03, anyways. I'm not familiar with other compilers. In your project options you can take off the need for this header, if you want.
